Fascinating fact: in 1963, Dieter Rams (of iconic Braun alarm clock and Vitsoe shelving fame) designed a handbag for his wife, Ingeborg. A classic, boxy piece with a simple curved handle, it was not unlike the kind of bag more recently designed by Valextra or #oldCeline.
45 years later, the ‘931’ bag is being reproduced for public consumption by the German accessories brand, Tsatsas. Rams paid this sweet tribute at its unveiling; “I wished to dedicate the handbag to Ingeborg, who has been my companion for so long and who has always been my alter ego. By making this public now, it is also a homage to her.”
The 931 bag (€900) is available on the Tsatsas website and in the Frankfurt store, in black and grey calfskin.
